Learning the laws of physics gives you an appreciation for some incredibly cool everyday phenomena that you might otherwise take for granted.

Physics is the study of matter and energy and the interaction between the two. Ok, maybe that sounds boring, but physics helps you understand why the world works the way it does … why planes fly, why your hear before you see, and why gravity pulls us down.

The study of physics will broaden and deepen your scientific understanding and is a terrific complement to many other majors, especially biology and chemistry. The skills you develop in the classroom and in the lab will prepare you for a life in science and beyond after graduation.
